Spring Travel: 4 Beautifying New York City Treatments To Try Before Your Next Vacation
It’s finally spring and after a season of sweaters, it’s time to make some warm weather travel plans. If you’re interested in a spring beach vacation or warm destination jaunt, you’ll probably be shedding your cold weather attire for the first time in months. If you’re not looking and feeling radiant just yet, here are four beauty treatments that will make your complexion and confidence soar.
1. Vivace – Manhattan Aesthetics
Early spring is a great time to treat any lingering hyperpigmentation you might have on your skin, especially before the summer months when we’re exposed to the most amount of sun. Vivace is a minimally-invasive treatment that utilizes radiofrequency and microneedling and is FDA-cleared. It helps fight everything from hyperpigmentation to fine lines and helps tone and tighten your neck. This virtually no-downtime procedure is offered at Manhattan Aesthetics. Upon arrival you’ll get an overview of the Vivace treatment then a numbing cream is applied to your skin for around 15 minutes. Next the aesthetician goes over your skin with the microneedling device which makes very tiny punctures into the skin which leads to new collagen production. The pain level is very low with just some redness following and the aesthetician applies serum to the skin which helps soothe it. Some results are visible immediately but after two weeks you get the full flawless picture, so book your visit pre-vacation accordingly.
2. Scar Treatment – LM Medical
Many of us have scars and scrapes which are noticeably textured or discolored patches on our skin. There have been many advancements in the field of scar treatments and if you want to fade the remnants of an injury, spring time ahead of swimwear season is the perfect time to do it. At LM Medical Dr. Morgan Rabach, a board-certified dermatologist, can help fade and reduce scars in size to the point where they’re barely visible. Depending on what type of scar you have, she will suggest and administer lasers like long pulse laser or microneeding to help skin resurface in the affected areas and also to help with discoloration. You may need several sessions but could be scar-free (or definitely very minimized) by the summer.
3. Sauna and Hot Tub – William Vale Hotel
While it’s no longer winter there are still going to be some brisk days as we inch towards summer — New York is famous for its cold spring weather. That’s why a sauna trip to the William Vale is still very much a good idea especially to get that signature post-sauna glow. Their barrel-shaped rooftop cedar saunas will warm you up and are the perfect date or friend afternoon hangout with views of Manhattan in the distance. Alternate between the sauna and their hot tubs to get a fun indoor/outdoor experience that’s guaranteed to revitalize your complexion.
4. Infrared Sauna – HigherDose at ModernHaus SoHo
Head to the 17th floor of ModernHause SoHo to enjoy their new infrared wellness spa which will make you look refreshed and feel fabulous. Book a 30- or 60-minute session in a HigherDose infrared sauna which allows you to choose your own music as well set the color tone with chromatherapy via remote. You will definitely get sweaty during this session but luckily there’s cold bottled water, cold eucalyptus towels and face mist by Li Organics close by. Book a sauna session a few days before a trip to shed your winter drabness and arrive at your destination looking svelte and rejuvenated.
